Pelosi: Public Opposes Obamacare Because ‘Understanding of it Has Been Jeopardized by Misrepresentations’ By Edwin Mora June 7, 2012

(CNSNews.com) -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the reason why many Americans oppose Obamacare is because “the understanding of it has been jeopardized by misrepresentations,” adding that the public’s opposition is “not about the bill, it’s about the message of it.”

At a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, Pelosi was asked about a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing that 41 percent of Americans want to see the Supreme Court overturn the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) in its entirety, and another 27 percent said they want to see just the mandate requiring all citizens to buy health insurance struck down.

After citing those numbers, a reporter then asked, “Why do you think that is and what does that say in terms of the chance that the Supreme Court striking it down?”

Pelosi said, “I’m very proud of the Affordable Care Act. I think that the understanding of it has been jeopardized by misrepresentations that have been put out there relentlessly, largely by the industries that have -- I shouldn’t say not benefited because they all, everybody benefits from this health care bill -- but who claim to have suffered from the bill.”

She continued: “Here’s the thing: the American Affordable Care Act stands there with Social Security, Medicare, health care for all Americans as a right, not a privilege. It was opposed vigorously by two forces, one the health insurance industry and secondly by anti-government ideologues who do not believe that there should be a government role in either in clean air, clean water, as well as health care in our country.”

If this was like the Social Security Act of 1935, then it’d be forty-four pages, and we could easily read it in 90 minutes. It’d be written at the 9th grade level....mostly because the members of the House of 1935 needed that “assistance”. What you have is an enormous package, which still today....no member of the House can admit in public that they’ve read the entire package, yet they passed it.

From the person who said they had to pass the bill to see what was in it.

I wonder if it’s occurred to Ms. Pelosi that some of us can actually READ for ourselves?

Pelosi botox queen of the hard left communist clan - every time she opens her mouth something bad and devious comes out. Pelosi is the devil’s merchant!

In a perfect universe that yammering twat would find herself in front of one of those death panels, and be informed that due to the effects of Botox on her faculties, that she would be ineligible for ‘life extension procedures’.

This way to the Soylent processing plant Nutzy, would you prefer to be immersed in standard taco flavor, or perhaps zesty ranch? (which is pretty close to ‘raunch’) :)

Not unlike Jane Fonda: “If you knew what communism was...you would pray on your knees that we would someday become communist.”

With the left, when the public doesn’t agree with them, the public just doesn’t understand.

The public opposes it, Nancy, because unlike you, they have read the damned thing.

Pelosi is a lying sack of excrement.

We oppose Obamacare because we can read.

She told us to pass it to find out wat is in it.

It was passed and we found out what is in it and we don’t like it.
Pelosi is no fool, she doesn’t make stupid comments like this for no reason. She knows her constituency and THEY ARE FOOLS> They eat her crap like it was candy, but Americans with half a brain know the facts. Under Obamacare we are screwed.

This bill was written by socialist lobbyists and what I’d call ideological cabals, lawmakers had no hand in drafting it.

no member of the House can admit in public that they’ve read the entire package, yet they passed it.

Indeed they passed it when overwhelming numbers of American Citizens opposed it. They passed it against the will of the American people. They passed it without knowing what was in it, much less understanding the unintended consequences.

Frankly, any bill containing more than one page is not a bill I want to see making it’s way through the halls of Congress. Too many opportunities for amendments and unrelated fluff.

‘Understanding of it Has Been Jeopardized by Misrepresentations’

‘Misrepresentations’..... really??!!

Would the ‘misrepresentations’ be kinda like, “we have to pass it to see what's in it”????

Maybe Nancy thinks the American public is just as simple-minded, deceitful and idiotic as SHE is!

No they are opposed because of the facts that came out on those hearings that were on CSPAN as Obama promised in his campaign-—oh wait

No, Nan, the understanding just keeps getting plainer with every little nugget that is unearthed---like $247 Per month Medicare premium in 2014---like a huge tax on your house sale after this year---and countless other little cuts to our freedom.

This woman needs to wear only red and pink, to match her political view.

Pepsi - I agree with you. Unlike the members of Congress who voted on it without reading it, I have had to read it in its entirety. I’ve also had to read and re-read the thousands of pages of regulations on this that the Obama Administration has been pumping out since March of 2010.

I am getting a truly visceral hatred of these people.

Any law that was passed between 2008-2012 that was passed without congress reading it ...SHOULD BE BROUGHT BEFORE THE COURT AND OVERTURNED.

They didn’t read obamacare and they didn’t read the 2009 stimulus either, which has their alternative healthcare plan in it. Don’t believe me...do your homework and google it!

NO LAW. ABSOLUTELY NO LAW IS VALID if it has not been read and understood by congress. The vote is/was invalid and it was not able to be representational of We the People.

Curent members are no brighter - they just hire lawyers and other "specialists to obfuscate the wording with extra wordiness and convoluted "logic" that can later be twisted to say whatever they think it should say.

So what Pelosi is saying is that people hate Obamacare because they understand it. I can see how that could confuse her.

This woman is “stopping-an-electric-fan-with-her-tongue” stupid. Breathtakingly stupid. How she got to be Speaker of the House is stunning. And I thank those who were responsible because she illustrates more than adequately how stupid Democrats are.

All you really have to understand about 0bamacare is that the overall goals of those who support it are antithetical to individual liberty.

No need to get in the weeds on any policy they support when you have that understanding in mind.
